Nailberry Top Coat & Nail Lacquer Review

I have been loving Clean Beauty lately and one day I decided to giveaway all my nail polish and just buy few that are from clean beauty brands. I realized I didn't need all the polishes that I had and it would benefit me more if I only use products that are non toxic for me. I have read before that there are many harmful ingredients that are added to nail polishes that are not good for our health so I finally decided to get rid of all my old ones and invest with clean beauty nail polishes. I came across with this brand while searching for possible products I would replace my old ones with and this brand stood out to me the most. They are available also from the webshops I normally order from which is great so I can also use every now and then the promotions they offer because this brand is included with the offers which is great news for me. 

I only ordered first these two just to try if I would love them. After searching for reviews and seeing pictures online, I finally decided to get this nude shade because I know I will use this a lot more compared to other shades. I can't get a lot because this cost so much compared to the other nail polish brands I normally buy so it is good also so I don't buy impulsively and would really think first before buying if I really want it and would use it a lot because they cost so much.

About the background story of this brand if you are curious. 
NAILBERRY was founded in 2012 by Sonia Hully. The brand started life as a luxury Nail Bar based in Chelsea London and swiftly transitioned into a range of multi-award winning premium polishes. When Sonia noted her high profile clientele were continuing to experience dry and damaged nails whether it was the result of lifestyle, pollution, or from the semi-permanent gel manicures, she went about developing a range of polishes that would help combat their concerns. The result was the award winning L’Oxygéné range. Using the latest in patented technology the L’Oxygéné range delivers colour in a healthier manicure. The range has since been complimented with an extensive range of Nail Treatments exclusively designed to further treat and repair damaged nails.
I only chose two products first to try if they would work for me and of course if I would love them before buying more because they are not cheap, almost €20 each which is steep. After so many considerations and it took me some days to finally decide which to get, I ended up with this two. One is a nail polish and a top coat. I don't have anything left from my old collection so I needed a top coat as well. 

The packaging is really simple and neat. I was a bit surprised because it didn't came with a box which is strange because they cost so much and they are not even inside a well sealed box so I would not know if someone opened it before me. I literally got them only wrapped in a bubble wrap and that's it. If I pay this much, I expected more and it should feel luxe as well. But other than that, this looks really professional and chic which is my kind of vibe now.

The applicator is long and thin that applies the product easily with precision and good control. There's no mess unlike with other applicators that are wide and bigger. I like that the cap is long enough to hold it comfortably while application. It is just easy to hold when it is longer like this.

This is really a great top coat and I see so much difference whenever I use it because my nail polish lasts long with this for days which never happens to me with cheaper nail polishes that normally would not even last me 2 days because they chip right away. But with this, they are still intact even after a week which I am very happy about. I also use this alone when I just want my nails to look healthy and shiny. Sometimes I am lazy but I still want my nails to look nice and presentable that's why a quick application of this makes a whole lot difference because my nails are normally dry and dull looking. But with the help of this, they look so much healthier and nicer to look at.

By the way, excuse my nails. I don't know how to shape them and also how to remove the side (hangnail) properly. So about this shade, among all the available shades they offer. This is the one that stood out to me the most. This is my kind of shade. I prefer nudes more than anything because they look classy and just beautiful any day. This applies quick and two coats is enough to cover good my nails. I prefer that my nails are fully covered than a sheer type of formula. But if you like a sheer look the one coat is enough.

My Verdict

I highly recommend this brand if you are looking for an effective and great quality clean nail polish products. I am really glad I switched and would never go back with the old brands I used to buy. Most of the nail polishes you can buy on the market have carcinogen ingredients and some of them are even used for paints so we should be very careful. That's why I will avoid them from now on. To know more about it, I found a post that would explain it more here. I love that within 10 minutes or less I am done applying all my fingernails and usually it takes also 20 minutes (or more) before they dry down completely which is amazing for something that is not even a quick dry formula. I normally wait 30 mins or even more than an hour from other brands before they dry down completely so this really saved me a lot of time. This combo really works well for chip free nails and gives a nice almost gel like kind of effect. I am really glad I tried this brand and because I loved it so much, I already added more shades and more to come for sure. I will update you with my newer shades soon and will post a review about them as well. Please watch out for it.
